SAP LBN: A Detailed Look at the Global Track & Trace and Material Traceability Options
Creating Transparency in the Supply Chain with Supply Chain Networks
Basically, Track & Trace means the tracking of deliveries. However, if you take a closer look at the first part, "Track", it becomes clear that there is more to it than that. Track" not only defines the location of a current delivery, but also provides information about who is currently in possession of it and what its condition is. "Track" always gives a current status update, so to speak. The second part, "Trace", on the other hand, shows the path of the delivery in retrospect.
In addition to the traceability of deliveries and products, Track & Trace can also track process documents, orders and invoices. This makes the two an unbeatable team when it comes to ensuring optimum transparency and reduced risk along the supply chain based on real-time data.
